  2. Oh no, they are as well. Fuck fuck fuck. That is a problem for me.
  3. Stunned that no-one has touched Jungle. Bland, at least three or four years past their sell-by-date, kept alive through being that unremarkable.
  4. Suits you, Saoi...sior...soa.....Sirshsur.
  5. Welcome to England, 2019! May I take your order? Cloth-eared nationalism with a side serving of historical ignorance?
  6. This one. If it was down to name pronunciation, you'd think Saoirse and HAAi would be sweatin' it. Even Peggy Gou gets mangled most the time.
  7. This'll be my Friday. Saturday will be Chemical Brothers, then all over IICON for Kode9, Laurel Halo, Hessle Audio et al. Rounding off with some tribal beatdowns from Tony Humphries. Sunday is Deptford Northern Soul Club in the Meat Rack – if I'm haven't caught them already multiple times by that point – then an Eris Drew / DJ Storm / Karenn death clash, which basically comes down to where the largest group of mates are at. And this excludes all the usual meandering into the Beat Hotel over the weekend. Very excited.
  8. It's been fine in the past from experience – just three of us, without needing to hold space for any late arrivals. More likely to be up Big Ground, inching closer to Cockmill, but in that rough part of the site. It's not all locked off by midday usually.

    Fit in well with Stormzy and Tame Impala then!
  10. Pigeons, meet cat: Stormzy -  30 (+10) Tame Impala -  80 Two Door Cinema Club - 55 Jon Hopkins - 73 Jorja Smith - 50  Interpol - 60 Pale Waves - 45 Cat Power -  52  Michael Kiwanuka - 50 The Killers - 33 Chemical Brothers - 79 Wu-Tang - 35 Jungle - 50 Bugzy Malone - 60 Hot Chip - 107 Kate Tempest -  70 The Cure - 85 Vampire Weekend - 75 Kylie - 60 Christine & The Queens - 75 Dave - 50 Janelle Monae - 70 Kamasi Washington - 50 The Streets - 55 Friendly Fires- 56  Rex Orange County - 55 Little Simz - 65
  11. This'll be it for me. With a 65 year old dad and a sleep-dependent gf, it's not viable to push them into an all-nighter in order to nab a prime spot. But a dawn wake-up and shuffle into the car is accepted as fine. Happy to arrive around midday. Kidney Mead / Big Ground won't be rammed yet.
  12. 2 Good Kylie (all the makings of the all-time best legend slot) Lauryn Hill (long overdue – let's just hope that's not the case for her timekeeping on the day) 2 Bad Lizzo (projects marketable positivity but demands any even moderately critical journalists be fired) Liam Gallagher (bring back Beady Eye)
  13. He drops Whitney halfway through which is pretty magic. Very much the kind of emotional 115-130bpm zone that should suit the Beat Hotel to a tee. In terms of prominence though yeah, he's a weird one – underrated but has never truly gone away. A steady career of good releases, a good label and good sets simmering at a mid-level without ever scaling up to the ranks of Talabot or, say, Palmsy (Palmsy Palmsy)
